The Waldorf School of Garden City is proud to announce that Maria Golebiewski, a graduating senior in the high school, is the recipient of the 2016 Parent Association Senior Scholarship $2,000 Award.
Through annual fundraisers – such as the Fall Fair and Photo Day – the Parent Association raises funds for School activities, such as the Parent Association Senior Scholarship and the annual Wish List. In addition to writing a compelling essay, criteria for the Parent Association Senior Scholarship Award includes a student’s academic record, participation in Waldorf’s programs and activities, and participation in the work of community, social or charitable organizations.
A graduating senior at the Waldorf School of Garden City, Maria has attended the private, independent school since sixth grade. She is a resident of Garden City South. During her high school career, she and a classmate spearheaded clothing and food drives for the less fortunate as well as developed an after-school reading club for Waldorf’s lower school children. In addition to her service, Maria has also been a star athlete on the Varsity Girls Soccer Team and Varsity Girls Basketball Team, and held a part-time job at a local restaurant.
This upcoming September, Maria will attend Boston University. Her award can be applied towards additional college expenses such as books and supplies.
